The Korean fantasy MMO Blade & Soul has reached more than one million players.
The news comes from developer NCSosft just one week after the game was released in Europe and North America. Though the game originally launched in Korea and China way back in 2012, which was the same year the game was announced for release in the West.
Senior Vice President of Publishing of NCSOFT West John Burns says “The sheer enthusiasm – not to mention volume – of North American and European players that have jumped into Blade & Soul since launch has been tremendous.”
The free-to-play online game has also found some notice in Japan. An anime series based on Blade & Soul aired there in early 2014.
